Bambini is an ongoing column that features Bamboo’s favourite eco parenting ideas and products, for children of all ages.
Let’s be honest: there’s nothing adorable about flaky patches of skin on your baby’s head. And, despite the fact that cradle cap is a common occurrence in an infant’s first few months of life, it doesn’t make it any easier to look at.
The solution? Beyond looking the other way, slathering your baby’s scalp with olive oil, or trying to loosen the patches yourself, we suggest California Baby Tea Tree & Lavender Shampoo & Bodywash (US $12).
Made with organic and sustainably grown ingredients, this product uses non-invasive and biodegradable decyl polyglucose (not sodium lauryl sulfate) to cleanse hair and skin. It loosens cradle cap like no other product we’ve used, is tear-free and hypoallergenic, and is safe enough to use from day one.
